Barking Legs Theater is moving Helen Gillet’s June 25 performance indoors.  The move is being made "with growing confidence in the safety conferred on ourselves and our community through vaccination" said officials.

A total of 40 tickets will be sold, roughly one third of capacity. For those who have purchased tickets, and are uncomfortable with the move indoors, their money will gladly be refunded.

Unvaccinated attendees are asked to wear masks while in the theater.

Review for Helen Gillet: 

Helen Gillet will make her first appearance in Chattanooga on Friday, June 25, and is a singer-songwriter and surrealist-archeologist exploring synthesized sounds, texture, and rhythm using an acoustic cello. Over the years — working in New Orleans with musicians of all stripes, from avant-garde jazz and classical to pop and funk. The core of her work is solo performance with live looping, layering cello parts and vocal lines. Gillet’s solo performance is known for its enigmatic quality as she fabricates each song with innovative use of the cello and true mastery of live looping technology. Fans of Andrew Bird and Ben Van Winkle will love this one.

Chattanooga Song Circle will present their monthly show in the Garden on Thursday, June 24, featuring Butch Ross on the dulcimer. And more. Butch has tackled everything from Radiohead to Bach and come away with a renewed appreciation for what the humble dulcimer is capable of. No genre is off-limits, nor is there a limit to what Ross has envisioned for this specific instrument.
